Wreath of Leaves

It's taken me 2 years, but I finally brought home Simon's Stitched Leaf Wreath. (It debuted in STAMPtember, 2015).  This die cuts out stitched leaves, and leaves a wreath shape outlined by stitches.  I pulled out my fall paper pads, and cut a bunch of them using subtle prints in fall colors.

Wreath of Leaves

supplies: ivory and kraft cardstock, various fall design papers, Simon's Stitched Leaf Wreath, Chisolm Wreath, and Autumn Blessings dies

First I cut the wreath in a variety of patterned papers, then I trimmed my ivory panel, die-cut the wreath again, and inlaid some of  the leaves back in.  Next I added a double layer of the Chisolm twig wreath, and then another layer of the leaves, using just the maple ones.  The Autumn Blessings die finished the panel, which was then popped above my card base.  I like the way the stitching around the wreath looks!

Hope your weekend goes well; let's all send up a prayer for Florida!
